We recognize that each and every person and situation is different. Therefore, we strive to customize our services in a way that addresses our client’s varying needs.  At Georgia HOPE, our clients are active participants in choosing which services would best fit their situation. Each client begins treatment by receiving an assessment, during which the client and clinician partner together to create a Plan of Care. This Plan of Care drives treatment and is the very foundation of our work with each child, adolescent and adult we serve.
